It could be a bad floppy drive. The device manager isn't always right when it indicates a device is working properly.
1.1 gig K7, XP Home Edition, 512 meg ram...When I click "My Computer" the floppy drive, is not shown, the rest of the drives are. In "device manager" the floppy is shown, but it indicates it has a problem. When "booting up" a msg. states "seeking boot record from floppy drive" I have ran "Norton Win Doctor", "Scan Disk", "Anti Virus", "Defrag" replaced the drive, unistalled it, and re-installed it. Everything else is working great.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
